Using only pure JavaScript (no jQuery or other libraries), how can I change the action of all matching forms?

If the action of a form is:
https://example.com/cart3.html

It should be changed to:
http://www.sitemaps.org/

However if the action is anything else it should remain unchanged.

I do NOT want to use jQuery or any other library.

This should do it:
(function(){
  var f=document.getElementsByTagName('form'),i=0,n=f.length,r=/^https:\/\/example.com\/cart3.html/i;
  for(;i<n;i++){
    if(re.test(f[i].action)) {
      f[i].action='http://www.sitemaps.org/';
    }
  }
})();
